Tent Reviews

May 26, 2015
Very friendly staff, close to Charleston for day trips! Some areas of the campground need updating, no 110 electric at some of the tent sites, showers in men's bathroom, for example. However, maintenance was going on while we were there, so maybe those and other issues will be addressed through the summer.

nice and shady tent site, friendly staff, some trash on the site was the only negative

I was delighted by the campground. Staff was super-friendly. Camp store stocked and very reasonable. This was my first koa experience and I'll definitely do it again!

Facility was okay, amenities good. Dogs welcome! Downside was location. Tent sites are small, no privacy at all. Needs more bushes between sites. Also we were right next to a used car lot that had bright lights on all night. Major road is very close by so there was a lot of traffic noise. A sound barrier wall or dense row of tall upright evergreen shrubs would be helpful.

I love KOA. Easy and affordable. I had a great stay in SC. My spot was perfect for my one person tent.

Ran out of firewood, on a sold out weekend there should have been plenty. Also our site was flooded. Take the site away or save it for late checkins.

The the grounds were not kept up and the property looked old. Trash was still on our campsite.

It was a lot further from the beach than indicated on the website and the camp sites were very close to one another so there wasn't much privacy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are 30 miles from our closest beaches so distance is relative to the beach you choose to visit.

campground gave us an uncomfortable feeling whilst here. couple 2 tent sites from us had a domestic incident at 1am threatening to kill each other with a knife. not overall as friendly as other KOAs we stayed at on our trip. mosquitos were also rampant, as is expected in humid summer weather, ensure you bring lots of mosquito repellant of some kind!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Tent occupants were evicted as soon as the incident was reported--mosquitoes are common to the Southeast, so we carry a wide range of repellant products in our camp store for your convenience.

Great, level sites and clean bathrooms, only thing I noticed that was wrong was one of the men's bathroom showers was out of order, other wise great stay!

Not enough bathrooms, Internet was bad, pool is in bad shape, not enough showers, too noisy. The camp ground sets close to the highway, airport and railroad. We had a hard time getting to sleep. The emploiyes were very good.

Always wondered about this KOA since it's conveniently located. Aside from the tight quarters, over-flying planes, by-passing trains and audible local traffic, the campground is clean enough and has a nice pool.

I stayed one very enjoyable evening in a tent site with electricity. The staff was very welcoming and informative. I had a great shower to clean up - lots of hot water. The wireless internet service was excellent. This KOA was a great place to stop on my trip!

We had a wonderful stay as always at Charleston KOA. We arrived late at night and our paperwork was taped to the door with the requested site. The campsite is quiet, peaceful and well shaded. We will be back.

I told the staff about a flooding shower, it was never fix. No paper tissue, not working toilet. AC in bathrooms ok.

This KOA is good for an inexpensive overnight stay in the area. It was not the type of KOA that I would have chosen to enjoy for a longer period of time for its own sake. (I prefer more rustic settings) The tent sites are crowded and not all of them have fire rings. It is right near a busy city area. The staff was very friendly and helpful though and the bathrooms were clean and well stocked.

there is no enforcement of quiet time after 11pm. From the time we checked in on Saturday afternoon to the time we checked out at noon on Sunday, the ladies room/shower was never cleaned and it was disgusting.
Apr 19, 2014
We found that staff very helpful and our site was fine. Watching the wildlife on the lake from our site was a huge plus.

The staff are very friendly.They remember us every time we stay there. We keep going back to this KOA because it is clean and well kept.

Very accommodating. Asked for a site close to bathhouse and got it. Also, maintenance was very efficient. They supplied us with a fire ring and the bathhouse was always clean. Could have better stocked store, but great stay for our family of 4 (hubby, 3 yr old, dog, and I) in a tent.

I have stayed at KOA Charleston once recently.(10.01.13) My ma & I were going to an anniversary party the 20th. She spoke of a motel room & I piped up & spoke of your KOA in Charleston, not far from Wando. I did see another on Hwy 17. I plan to check that one out also.
Oct 21, 2013
This KOA is always friendly. They will gladly exchange a campsite if you don't like it. They remember us because we are there every week-end. This is a very clean campground.

We absolutely loved our camping trip at KOA. It was our 6 year olds first time & she's ready to do it again!

We came with a group of cub scouts and really enjoyed our stay. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They had a lot of great suggestions and a scavenger hunt for the boys. The bathrooms were the cleanest I've ever seen! The drive into Charleston was all interstate and only took about 20 minutes. We are definitely planning to return with the family.

Our stay was good other than the pool was closed almost our whole stay. It finally opened the day before we left. We were counting on the pool to help entertain the 7 kids we had with us but no such luck. I wish they would have told us about the pool being closed when we made our reservations.

This was the first time I stayed at a KOA and I was very happy with my stay. I just wish the bathrooms were more centrally located.
Jun 24, 2013
The campground and pool were nice. The drive to the beach wasn't bad. The camp store didn't really stock alot of items. The mosquitoes were terrible.
Jun 23, 2013
We have been staying in this KOA since March of 2013. The personnel are great and everything is very clean. Only one thing, the mosquitoes and ants are bothersr I wish they would do weekly or monthly fogging to keep the mosquito and ant population down..l

The staff was great. The campsite and bathhouse was always clean!
Jun 17, 2013
This campground does not have a fire ring and it is close to the road so you hear the traffic at night. Very Unhappy with this campground. But the employees were really nice.

Warm greetings at arrival complete w/cup of lemonade. Large tent campsite. Bathroom locked and clean! only 3 showers.
